Using Marsala in Your Home

Interior designers around the world were excited when color authority Pantone revealed its 2015 Color of the Year.  As its name would suggest, “Marsala” can be described as a rich, wine color. We should expect to see Marsala frequently on the runways and in home decor throughout the year.

You don’t need a complete design makeover to give your room a little pizzazz. Pantone’s Color of the Year works great with just about every color scheme. Start out simple with some centerpieces, rugs, or even  window treatments to refresh your interior space. Curtains are an easy way to add that pop of color, but don’t take our word for it. Check out these fabulous home decor designs for inspiration on how to use Marsala.

These carefully chosen pillows add just the right amount of color and keep the room feeling light and open. Go a step further and add some tastefully placed window treatments to block out the mid day sun. If you are looking for a splash of color, Marsala’s earthy tone adds a nice contrast in any room.

Lamps, rugs, chairs, curtains, and even a table centerpiece can add that extra finishing touch to your space. Try out some fun accent centerpieces.

A bold accent wall or window treatments keep a room from looking stark and uninviting. Give your space a modern twist with a dark colored accent wall or drapes.

As a Contrast 

As a rich, bold color, Marsala certainly makes a statement when set in contrast to a white backdrop.  If you want a complete design makeover, here are some artistically designed spaces using Pantone’s Color of the Year.

As a Compliment

We think Marsala works as a nice compliment and brightens up the room. Consider a multicolored rug, or custom shades.

The possibilities are nearly endless because this shade is so versatile. Start out with some accent curtains, a valance or custom shades to add visual warmth to your home.
